Description

R6RS provides support for #; nested sexp comments,
and #| ... |# nested block comments. Do we include
either or both of these?

Change History (14)

comment:1 Changed 7 years ago by cowan

PLT, Gauche, MIT, Gambit, Chicken, Bigloo, Kawa, SISC, Chez support both #; and #| ... |#.

Chibi supports only #;. (Fix that, willya, Alex?)

Scheme48/scsh, s7, SCM, sxm supports only #| ... |#.

Guile, Scheme 9, sscm, vscm don't support either one.

SCM has an incompatible meaning of #;.

I recommend including support for both #; and #|...|#.

Kawa and s7 don't properly nest #|...|# comments.

comment:3 Changed 7 years ago by alexshinn

For the record, I consciously chose not to
support #|...|# in Chibi. I just think it's ugly.
But I'm not particularly set on this.

I'm good with #;
I really dislike #| ... |#

comment:5 Changed 7 years ago by arcfide

I use #; and #
# extensively, and I do think that we should have some way of doing block comments.

comment:6 Changed 7 years ago by cowan

For the record, #|...|# and #; are specified by SRFI 30 and SRFI 62 respectively.
